March is National Nutrition month — get ready to get healthy!
A new month is a new chance to make a change, for the better! Use these tips for at-home workouts and guides for dorm-room approved meal/snack prep to make this your healthiest month yet!
Dorm room healthy foods
Prepping healthy snacks to have on-hand will prevent you from binge-ing on microwave popcorn and hershey’s bars during your all night study sessions.
Lumberjack Tip: Have a shoe organizer laying around?
Utilize your resources and fill it up with healthy granola bars, dried fruit, and yes — even kale chips. You’ll feel prepped and you’ll feel primed for your workout.
At-home (or in-room) workouts
Want a feel good mood boost? Try these dorm-approved workouts that are sure to get your blood pumping and don’t require any equipment other than yourself!
When you’re done with your workouts, refresh with a tasty smoothie (one of the easiest ways to get your fruit & veggie intake)!
Power up on campus
Remember, we’re here to help. Check our #HealthyJacks events on campus that will fuel your body and your mind 💪
